The 20th anniversary of the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 transitions into election mode as the famous Griffey advertisements from 1996 return in a big way at the perfect time.
During the height of Griffey’s fame in the mid 90’s, Nike embarked on a brilliant campaign to vie for his candidacy to office. The ads were star-studded and patriotic, and helped propel Griffey to even further heights both on and off the field.
The Nike Air Max Griffey 1 “Vote for Griffey” continues the story that actually played out as it was written decades ago. Griffey would dabble in politics after his playing days came to a close, and be inducted into baseball’s hall of fame. Fittingly, the shoes come with “Griffey in ’16” stickers to continue the longstanding narrative. Take a look below and cast your ballot for this pair on June 28.
